of slavery? well, last week the federal government as it does, you know, once or twice a year came out with its latest figures on birthrights. and in particular on one i'm going to point to is the illegitimacy rate or out-of-wedlock births. here they are. 72.3% of african-americans now are born out of wedlock. 72.3%. american indians, 66.2%. latinos, it's 53.3%. for whites it's still pretty high, but it's 29.1 percent. and for asians it's 17.2%. so in other words, seven out of ten, six out of ten, five out of ten for blacks, american end yangs and latinos. these are the so-called underrepresented minorities that get racial preferences. and then fewer than three out of ten and fewer than two out of ten for whites and aiz items -- asians, people who are typically discriminated against. it is no accident that these figures line up quite well with how well different groups are doing not only in terms of education, but in terms of crime and, you know, whatever social indicator you want. that is the real problem. and, of course, that is not going to be fixed by racial preferences and univers

for circumstances when the government searches through its database of captured communications looking for information on individual american citizens. otherwise, by means of these so-called backdoor searches, the government may conduct significant warrantless surveillance of american persons. i believe this current practice is inconsistent with core fourth amendment privacy protections and needs to be reformed. during consideration of fisa in the judiciary committee, senator durbin and i introduced a bipartisan amendment to address this very problem. the language of our amendment is identical to that offered by senators wyden and udall during consideration of fisa by the select committee on intelligence. the amendment clarifies that section 702 does not permit the government to search its data base of fisa materials to identify communications of a particular united states person. in effect, it would require the government to obtain a warrant before performing such queries involving an american person's communications. the amendment is limited in scope. it excludes from the warrant req

sum of money here in terms of funding the government. but it seems like one of the issues, the democrats -- you see this as an opportunity to address inequality. >> over the last ten years, sort of income for the wealthiest people has gone up and stagnated for almost everyone else and raising taxes on the wealthy isn't something that necessarily will put a huge brick on that but you lift your foot off the gas a little bit and begin -- you can use the money to begin supporting programs like unemployment insurance, bolsters programs like the affordable care act which do end up putting money back into the pockets of ordinary americans. i think that, like i said earlier, the focus on deficit reduction is odd. unemployment is still in the 7.5 to 8% range. it's not going down particularly rapidly. and what i think we want right now is to focus all of our attention on lowering unemployment. ultimately full employment is the best deficit reduction program, it's the best way we have to reduce the amount of money the government spends. just people are putting in more tax revenue. le

it happens that the folks that want the government subsidies find a way to try to keep them at all costs. not in the light of day. they could not sustain a debate in the committee on debate on the floor, where we voted to eliminate direct payments. but somehow they're able to come back around at the end and keep that government money, even when prices are high. even when no one could look straight in the face of any taxpayer and say they ought to be getting that subsidy. yet, under the leader -- republican leader's partial extension of the farm bill, those subsidies that we voted to eliminate would be fully continued. fully continued. now, in our version agreed to by chairman lucas and myself, put on the calendar by speaker boehner, on the suspension calendar in the house by the rules committee in the house, agreed to on the calendar in the house, we would shave a portion of those subsidies to make sure that we continue to fund all of the farm bill for the next nine months until we can once again come together and write a farm bill. but i have to say as somebody who's been operating in g

be a violation of law. here's the key point to understand about incidental collection: although the government may, under the right circumstances, be authorized to retain the communication between known terrorists and presumptive u.s. person or persons, including the phone number he relayed to the terrorist, the government cannot place the united states number on surveillance and start collecting the calls to and fro the u.s. number without first obtaining a court order or a warrant. to do so would be to target a united states person, which i'll explain is reverse targeting. can the government use section 702 to target a u.s. person? this is important. and the answer is no. the law specifically prevents direct collection against u.s. persons. this prohibition is codified in 702-b which states that the section may not be used -- and i quote -- "to intentionally target any person known at the time of acquisition to be located in the united states or to intentionally target a united states person reasonably believed to be located inside the united states." is there a loophole or back door that al
